What has happened to the real tricycle?

22 November, 2018

Where is ‘the real tricycle’?

• I WENT recently to see White Teeth at what I continue to regard as The Tricycle (now being called the Kiln). The new seats are a great improvement and the production was excellent.

I have never doubted Induh Rubasingham’s qualities as a director. The changes in the foyer will no doubt be embraced by me in due course.

However during the interval I searched in vain for the tricycle. The real tricycle whose wheels turned when you contributed to the upkeep of the theatre.

What has happened to it? Will it be reinstated? If it was sold how much did it fetch? Automata are much collected.
